MINITAB[TM]: the standard for Six Sigma success. (Profile).

The practical application of statistical methods is more widespread today than at any time in history. In manufacturing, process industries, hospitals and services, statistical thinking is being used to drive down costs, increase efficiency, reduce defects, and control variability. And it is no longer strictly the domain of statisticians--the pursuit of Six Sigma quality is pushing statistical thinking into all facets of the organization.

The leading Six Sigma consulting groups use and recommend MINITAB, reinforcing its position as the premier general-purpose statistics package for statistical quality improvement worldwide.

MINITAB meets the unique challenge of providing a comprehensive collection of statistical methods that is easy to use, even for users who are uncomfortable with statistics. At Minitab, we've been working on this challenge for more than 25 years and ate proud to offer the only statistics package that provides:

* The ideal collection of methods

* Unsurpassed ease-of-use

* Exceptional technical support and customer service

* A long-standing track record of success

* Solutions that fit customer budgets

MINITAB Release 13 for Windows offers you all this and more. For quality improvement professionals, MINITAB is the gold standard of statistics packages:

"Every Black-Belt involved in Six Sigma at American Express uses M1NITAB ... What Microsoft Office is to word processing and spreadsheet analysis, MINITAB is to the practitioner of the DMAIC methodology."
Ray Balisnomo, Project Manager
Six Sigma Group, American Express


Compared to other statistical software, MINITAB shines. Next to spreadsheet software, it excels.

MINITAB is all-in-one Statistical and graphical analysis software, so there is no need to buy additional modules, add-ins or specialty packages.

Easy to Use

From the very beginning, MINITAB's hallmark has been ease-of-use. Users at all levels find MINITAB friendly because we put as much effort into designing an interface that is easy to use as we do into designing the statistical features. The result is statistical power that can be effectively harnessed by non-statisticians and statisticians alike.
